Bobble hats


Very sad to say that the weather's getting a lot colder here in England! But I don't mind so much now that I've seen all of the great knitwear up for sale this A/W. And I have to say, one of the most exciting items for me is the classic bobble hat, which I'm glad to see back in the shops!

There's something so great about wearing bright hat on a dreary winter day. They're a good way to add a bit of individuality - and 80s 'ski-chic' - to your attire when you've covered up the rest of your outfit with a long coat!

As it happens, I bought this bobble hat way back at the start of the summer, from a charity shop in town. (Don't worry - it has been thoroughly washed! Theres something especially creepy about charity shop hats. It's the same thing with shoes. I don't know if anyone else feels the same way...). It has been sitting in my wardrobe ever since, waiting for it's first wear.

It's covered in golf balls on golf tees - something I didn't actually notice when I bought it, but it adds to the charm! After having a little look around on the internet, I found some other beautiful knits that I thought I'd share. I especially like the fair-isle styles like the red one from Asos...


Have a look on Topshop.com for a big selection of winter accessories!

P.S. I have another thrifted coat to show you all :D. So stay tuned!

I love Bobble hats! I found the perfect hat on topshop a few days back which I was considering buying but since it's sadly been removed from the website, and I can't find it in any local shops so I'm guessing it's totally sold out! :(

ooh, I like your hat! I also really like the striped topshop one that is your favorite. Both are so cheery, you can't be depressed when you're wearing them, even when the weather sucks.

oh you look so beautiful! i have always wanted a hat with a big ol' bobble on it - i had one as a child, but since i have a head as as big as a watermelon, i have a lot of trouble with hats. i am not a hat girl. woe is me.

Love the wooly hat , i agree that a bobble on top of a wolly hat does add character to both the hat and the wearer.

Bobble on a hat looks best on young males easily.If hes your brother then you can pick on him (in a friendly way) for having a bobble on his hat. My brothers both wear bobble hats when out with me :)
